Inuyasha, Vol. 16 (VIZBIG Edition)

Book #16 of Inuyasha

Kagome is an ordinary modern schoolgirl living an ordinary life. Who would have thought the dried-up old well on the site of her family's shrine would be a gateway to Japan's ancient past? Drawn through the gate against her will, Kagome finds herself battling demons for control of what she thought was a worthless trinket but is actually a powerful magical gem, the Shikon Jewel! Together with an unlikely ally, the half demon Inuyasha, Kagome begins a quest to recover the shards of the Shikon Jewel and learn more about her link to the past.

The forces of good and evil battle it out inside the very bodies of Kikyo and Naraku…and ultimately the Shikon Jewel itself. Then Inuyasha's half-brother Sesshomaru is trapped in the world of the dead. Will he find the key that opens the door to the world of the living? Meanwhile, Inuyasha and the others stumble upon a strange village ruled by a demon with peculiar feeding habits...

Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honourable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. Takahashi won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film.
